The Holy Land

My Catholic Journeys helps you to echo the invitation of our Lord, to “Come and See” to your community. From Bethlehem to Nazareth, from Capernaum to Jerusalem, you will be able to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. If pilgrimage is truly at the heart of our faith, then visiting Israel should make our hearts beat with even more fervor and excitement.
